    Out of the box after 35+ years,...

    My last steamer in my collection is a [post war?] Lionel Cab #225. 2-6-2 I assume. It seems to be the most used, and I have a can of parts for it. I can locate a #224 but cannot find information on the #225. I placed it on the track, got a grawl out it and shut it down.

    Any info of it's history and the appropiate tender would be appreciated.

    From here,.. its cleaning, testing, cleaning and more parts. I am setting up a shop/work table in my garage now. And, yes I am searching for old parts, manuals and wiring diagrams.

    As I progress I will post before and after restoration photos.

    Again, Thank you for your comments, I intend to do my best in the retorations.

    Granpa,.....

    Siderods are loose and laying in a parts can. Needs a little work, but I have high hopes. Today is the first day this steamer has seen sunshine for many decades. Thank you. Granpa

    Renova PPR,

    Thanks again for pointing me in the correct direction.
    Looks like the appropiate tender for this unit is a 2224W diecast.

    THANK YOU.
